Do you experience pain when drinking something hot or cold?

Do you hate brushing because it’s uncomfortable?

If you answered yes, you probably have sensitive teeth.

So how do get sensitive teeth?
Tooth sensitivity happens because of exposed dentin due to enamel loss or receding gums. Dentin is the grayish or yellowish tissue that is found under your enamel and contains a large amount of tubes. These tubes run from the tooth’s outer surface to the nerve, and when exposed are highly sensitive to temperature changes. That’s why eating specific foods (such as hot, cold or spicy) may be painful.
